Football Manager 2022 AC Milan: Tactics, Budget, Key Players, Who To Sign and More

AC Milan

AC Milan are an interesting team to manage on Football Manager 2022 and we have the ultimate guide for starting up.

The club has an immense history and have won Serie A no fewer than 18 times.

However, they haven’t actually won the Italian league title since 2011, so they could well be seen as something of a sleeping giant.

Milan have not actually won a trophy since 2016, when they lifted the Italian Super Cup.
In the Champion League, for example, the club has not won the trophy since 2007.

Are you the person to bring real silverware back to the San Siro?

Suggested best XI

AC Milan Best XI FM22

When you load up the save, you’ll be given a suggestion of the strongest team available to you.

In a 4-2-3-1 formation, the XI is thus: Maignan; Calabria, Kjaer, Tomori, Hernandez; Kessie, Bennacer; Saelemaekers, Brahim Diaz, Rebic; Ibrahimovic.

There’s some real talent here.


You’ll be suggested three presets for Milan when you head into the tactics screen.

They’re ‘control possession’, ‘tiki-taka’, and ‘fluid counter-attack’.

This makes sense.

Key positions to strengthen

The priority has to be the signing of an elite attacking midfielder who can come in over the top of Brahim Diaz.

At centre-back, you have got three good senior defenders in Simon Kjaer, Fikayo Tomori, and Alessio Romagnoli, but the depth consists of youngsters, so you could look to bring in an experienced central defender.

Youngsters ready for the first team

AC Milan development centre

You’ve got no youngsters in the development centre ready to make the step up to the first-team.

However, there are youngsters to keep an eye on, such as Chaka Traore and Kevin Zeroll, who could become better than Ante Rebic and Franck Kessie respectively.

Full 1st season squad

Goalkeepers: Antonio Mirante, Ciprian Tatarusanu, Alessandro Plizzari, Mike Maignan.

Defenders: Andrea Conti, Davide Calabria, Pierre Kalulu, Simon Kjaer, Fikayo Tomori, Alessio Romagnoli, Matteo Gabbia, Theo Hernandez, Fode Ballo-Toure, Alexis Saelemaekers, Alessandro Florenzi.

Midfielders: Tiemoue Bakayoko, Franck Kessie, Emir Murati, Sandro Tonali, Ismael Bennacer, Rade Krunic.

Forwards: Junior Messias, Samu Castillejo, Ante Rebic, Brahim Diaz, Daniel Maldini, Rafael Leao, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Olivier Giroud, Pietro Pellegri.
